Can I rotate components?

Uizard does not have the ability to rotate components, text, images, etc yet.

Are there any tables I can use?

While we don't have a way to create a table from scratch yet, you can use one of our pre-made components as a starting point.

Here's how to find it:

Open one of your projects, click "Templates" on the left-hand menu, and type in "table" in the search bar:

Is there any way to create a graph/chart?

Currently, we don't have a graph or pie chart builder; however, you can find pre-made data plots within our templates.

Click on 'Templates' within the left-hand menu and search for 'Data plots.'

Are there any pop-up components?

Unfortunately, there aren't any pre-made pop-up component features; however, you may be able to mock this in your design through interactions.

Is there a pre-made on-click or sidebar menu/navigation?

There isn't a pre-made on-click or sidebar navigation/menu builder at this time. However, you can manually create the look and feel of one through duplicating screens and interactions.

Is there an arc line shape?

There isn't a design component where you can create an arc line shape.

Can I add a video or audio component to my project?

The Uizard platform does not yet support the capability to add video or audio to a project.

Is there a functional carousel for images?

Unfortunately, there is no image carousel feature at this time.

Is there a triangle shape?

There is not a triangle shape at this time; however, we are working on adding more shapes in the future.

Can I flip an image or component horizontally?

There is no flip feature at this time; however, we are constantly working on improving our platform.

Are there show/hide functions for components?

There aren't any show/hide functions at this time; however, you may be able to recreate this look and feel through interactions.

Is there a way to slant a shape?

Unfortunately, there is no feature to slant a shape at this time.

How can I add a column component to my design?

We offer a couple of different component templates that you can use as a starting point for a column. You can adjust our template to better suit your needs and design.

Here is where you can find these component templates:

1) Click on 'Templates' within the left-hand menu and then search 'Column':

2) Choose the one that best suits your vision and manually edit the component template.

How can I make all of the images the same size automatically?

Unfortunately, it's not currently available on our platform to resize all images automatically; however, there is a workaround.

You can select multiple images by holding down the 'Shift' button and clicking the images you'd like to resize.

Once you've done that, you can click the "Design" menu button on the right-hand side and find the size section. It will say "Mixed", but you can type in the size that you'd like them to be in those boxes and it will change the multiple image sizes at once.
